Photography that captures the real heart of your family
You might think it’s impossible to get gorgeous family photos when your kids never sit still.
But actually it’s not! You just need to choose the right type of family photography session.
My lifestyle family photography sessions are more of an adventure than a “stand & pose” photoshoot
and it makes them perfect for kids of all ages.
WHAT ARE LIFESTYLE FAMILY SESSIONS?
Usually my family sessions take place at the beach - but we can also do them at your place or a local park. There are so many adventures to be had in our beautiful outdoors and that’s what we focus on during these sessions.
For kids around 7 – 10yrs I sometimes suggest bringing a ball or a frisbee as it’s a great way to get them warmed up and enjoying themselves without worrying about the camera.
For younger kids I have lots of ideas for games they can play with you and each other so you get the gift of not just beautiful photos, but an hour of real quality time with the kids to just be present and enjoy them.
WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND DOING AN ALBUM?
Lifestyle family photoshoots usually result in quite a lot more photos than a standard portrait photoshoot. While that’s awesome for you, it can also be overwhelming in terms of choosing your best photos to frame or print.
And that’s why I suggest you think about capturing your session in an album which I can design with your favourite images.

WHAT MY CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
"Tracey is an absolute gem. She was so calm and relaxed when taking our family photos that the kids were super chill in front of the camera. She did an amazing job of wrangling 3 under 9 years, and was able to go with the flow even thru tantrums and tears from falling over. The photos she took really captured the love and craziness of our wee family. She even took some stunning couple pics of me and my husband that I adore I would recommend Tracey in a heartbeat.
Kids grow so fast; if you are considering getting some family photos done with Tracey, please do it!!."
